There are so many...

''Don't blame yourself...Don't change yourself...Just wanna be over you, see and feel numb...Don't hate yourself''
even the entire song...

Inside the vehicle the cold is extreme. Smoke in my throat kicks me out of my dream.
 
Dark Matter's just my favorite song of all time, really.

I take this poll as referring to how much I am affected by hearing a particular part of a song sung by SW, rather than the lyrics themselves, though of course the latter are a major contributing factor. It's lyrics, plus tune, plus emotion, plus whatever other undefinable elements make a particular passage send chills up the spine.
So without thinking too hard, I would nominate:
 
"I may just waste away from doing nothing"
 
"Don't hate me... I'm not special like you"
 
"Strange how you never become
The person you see when you're young"
 
"Stop whining... please"
 
"In this moment - you were stolen
There's black across the sun"
 
All of My Ashes.
 
That'll do for now.

"Sometimes I feel like a fist!"
 
"I won't let the shadows take their toll."
 
"I come in value packs of ten, in five varieties."
 
Since noone else has, I'll lay down some Insurgentes love.
 
"Holy mother of the simple one, when you smile at me you bring me down."
 
"God always shouts, and you always ki-ck!" (the love the say he says kick particularly)
 
"The other half is somewhere else" just a eerie, chilling lne XD
 
I'm probably missing some, but these popped up.

Heartattack in a Layby- We'll grow old together. BEAUTIFUL!
My Ashes- Saiiiiiis (near the end)
A Smart Kid- I will wait for you. Until the sky is blue (especially the Atlanta live version)
Drown With Me- You should drown with me (I LOVE the way he sings that)
The Seance- Under gaslight, the joining of hands. Chanting a name over and over (it gives me goosebumps, the way he sings this lyric)
Lightbulb Sun- When I'm asleep the smoke fills me. I feel the heat, my illness leaves me
The Rest Will Flow- Stay with me my angel I found you  
Now I don't feel low (it makes me cry, the way he sings this. It's a really lovely song IMO)
.3- Black the sky, weapons fly.
 
 
SW is not only a fantastic songwriter and guitarist, but he's a brilliant singer IMO.

It got me at the Asheville show.  Never sung a song so hard in my life when they played that.  Frickin bitch is still driving me insane, but man, it was great therapy.

"I'm a shade, and easy to ignore" - Kinda emo I know, but I've always liked it.
"I woke up and I had a big idea, to buy new soul at the start of every year"
"Only apathy from the pills in me, it's all in me, all in you"
"Sullen and bored the kids stay, and in this way they wish away each day"
"But Russia on ice is burning a hole"
 
I could keep this up all night, there are so many great lines.

SW: "If you watch MTV, Hip-Hop culture, the American Idol, reality TV, alot of it is aimed at a very low kinda level of intellect [...] Which for me is the most depressing thing."

IMO, the climax of In Absentia. Its fantastic how they guide you over the incredible bass line and then all explode in theese two lines.

I seem to recognize this every time and it always sounds so odd... but I like it.

I'd also add:  
"I could tell you what I'm thinking While we sit here drinking But I'm not sure where to start"  
in Time Flies, really sticks in my mind.
